A couple of days ago our cat caught a baby bunny. The kids rescued him several times in one day and miraculously it never got hurt. We released him across the street in the neighbor's yard two days ago. Amazingly, it has made its way back to our yard on purpose in spite of the cat chasing it out each time. Last night he was happily nibbling our grass, completely unafraid of the kids standing close by, watching.
Sadly, this morning, we rescued the bold bunny one last time. The kids made a sweet, soft bed so he'd be comfortable in his last moments. As I've passed by his little resting place, I've found more and more attendants placed nearby. No one wanted him to be alone in his suffering.
It is timely for us to talk about death, grief and hope today. I love that the kids wanted to bring comfort through presence to the bunny. When Jesus was in the garden he didn't want to be alone. Over and over, each of the disciples abandoned him in his greatest need. And yet, Jesus persisted, persevered, and willingly laid down his life for us. Perfect, selfless love in the face of our abandonment. Amazing love, amazing grace, indeed.
Today we anticipate and prepare for tomorrow's festivities. We rest in the hope and assurance that Christ's resurrection provides. Happy Easter, a day early. ❤️ #heisrisen #blessedassurace #hopeintheresurrection #Jesusinthegarden #HappyEaster
